£250,000 of resurfacing works are to be carried out on the A68 in Jedburgh.
The work will be carried out on a 1.4km stretch of road between Bongate and Jedforest rugby ground.
The investment by Transport Scotland will see upgrades made to the road.
Work will being on Sunday, 13 July, with a convoy traffic management system in place between 8pm and 6am each night and from 8am and 5pm each day.
It's hoped the work will be finished by Monday 28 July.
“This section of the A68 is used by around 7,000 vehicles every day and now requires maintenance. These works have been planned to minimise disruption to local residents and businesses.
“Some disruption is expected and we encourage people travelling to check the Traffic Scotland website for the latest travel information. We would like to thank the local community in advance for their patience during these essential works.”
A study that recommended the sheriff courts in Jedburgh and Selkirk be allowed to remain open has been approved by the Scottish Court Service Board.
The feasibility report concluded the best way to keep an integrated justice service in the Borders would be to keep the courts in the two towns, which have up until now been threatened with closure.
The study will be considered by the Scottish Borders Council at its meeting later this week.
“I welcome the feasibility study conclusions, reached after extensive dialogue with a wide range of justice organisations on future justice services in the Scottish Borders. I am confident this gives us a solid platform to deliver the best services for the people of the Scottish Borders.
“The feasibility study shows that while it is right we test the concept of justice centres it equally important it is that we tailor approaches that are right for local communities, and we will continue with this approach as we consider Justice Centres in other locations”
